Becker Silverstone cd changers


Recommended Posts

I have a 99 Porsche Boxster. I am looking to install a Becker Silverstone CD changer. The cd changer that was OEM for this car was the Becker Silverstone model 2660. Becker no longer makes these and has non available. They replaced it with the 7860. I have heard that this unit is smaller and the mounting hardware does not conform to the Boxsters ready mounting system. Becker has been of no help to me. Does anyone know if the Becker 7860 will work or has proper brackets for this install, or could it be a nightmare to install.

Better yet....does anyone have a Becker Silverstone 2660 with all the required brackets and mounting gear.

Thank you for your help

I answered your question about the 7860 on another board.

My friend Dave H. in San Jose. California has the 2660 changer, cable, and bracket. He installed them on his Boxster which is the same as a C2. When his lease was up he removed them and gave his car back to Porsche credit. He thinks he needs the changer because he will some day get another Boxster, but it has been 1 1/2 years. Jeff

It is strange that Becker discontinued the 2660 changer since it is popular with Porsche owners. The other Becker changer that works is the 2630. It is a 10 disc. It is also about 50% bigger than the 2660 so you cannot mount it on the factory bracket. I think Becker has also discontinued the 2630. Continential Imports has no 2660 changers.

In the olden days people were putting in Sony changers as they said the Becker units were made by Sony. The Sony 6 disc CDX-T62. A local 1998 Boxster guy has the 10 disc Sony CDX-705 which may require an eprom thing. These Sony models have been long discontinued.

You can always buy the CDC-3 from Porsche since it is identical to the 2660, but you have to pay the Porsche price. :angry:

I just spoke briefly with Continental imports by e-mail. They advise that they have an adapter mounting bracket that is available from them for about 20 dollars that they say will adapt the 7860 to the OEM mounts. I sent them back an e-mail for clarification and pricing. No picture of it though.

I will have to wait and see I guess. I am always a bit suspicious of adapters. Hopefully this will address my problems. Only time will tell.
